Thistles and Thieves by Elizabeth Preston
This is a fascinating and entertaining story. Tam is strong, smart and caring. Juliette is bold, brave, stubborn and caring. King Alex needs Tam to leave his mourning behind him, so he sends Juliette and Vienna to entice him, but they think that it's just to cheer him up. Juliette is determined to not marry a Scot, Tam is determined to not remarry ever. The drama and fireworks start soon after they meet, and get more intense as they get to know each other. But a series of unfortunate accidents have them realizing that they care about the other, then the king gets involved again. It's a very entertaining and intense story that I couldn't put down.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Hidden Gems. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
